This project morphs the
"org.scala-lang" % "scala-dist" % $version maven artifact
into a Scala
$version distribution (zip, tar.gz, deb, rpm, and msi).
The following parts of this repo are not part of the distribution:
documentation/: the LaTeX version of the Scala Language Specification (we're moving to a Markdown-based spec);
tool-support/: a collection of editor configurations etc (looking for a maintainer/packager!);
bash-completion/: generates bash completions for the common scala commands (looking for a maintainer/packager!).
To build a distribution, run:
universal:package-bin- Builds the universal zip installer
universal-docs:package-bin- Builds the universal documentation zip
debian:package-bin- Builds the debian DEB file. Requires dpkg-deb
rpm:package-bin- Builds the yum RPM file. requires rpmbuild
windows:package-bin- Builds the windows MSI. Requires WIX 3.6 installed
s3-upload task's mapping are configured based on the platform
the installer is running on: on Windows, it builds the MSI; on another platform,
it'll create and upload the other packages in the above list. (Use
s3Upload::mappings for a dry-run.)
The version of Scala to package is derived from the most recent git tag,
or you can specify it using
This packager only works for Scala 2.11 releases (starting with M8),
as earlier ones did not publish the
scala-dist artifact to maven.
Due to limited resources, the native packages are quite rudimental, and bash-completion/tool-support aren't packaged at all.
If you'd like to maintain any of these packages, please contact scala-internals, and we'll do our very best to support you!

The branching structure mimics that of scala/scala: master is the upcoming 2.11.0 release, and the 2.10.x branch is your target for 2.10.x features.
